Mark your calendar, because the season 3 premiere date for BET’s Being Mary Jane, starring Gabrielle Union, has been announced.
On Oct. 20 at 9 p.m. est, catch up with fan favorites as they continue their quests for love. But this time around, the show is stepping it up a notch with its guest star appearances.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Jill Scott and Loretta Devine will appear on the series.
Scott is taking on the role of Jackie, Niecy’s mother. She will be stopping in town to pay her daughter and Patrick a much needed visit.
Devine, on the other hand, will play Cecilia, the woman whose car was struck by Mary Jane’s vehicle in the last few moments of the season 2 finale. The 66-year-old’s character will attempt to extort the news anchor for $25,000, but she and MJ will later bond over their life experiences.
It looks like the new plot lines will make the upcoming season just as juicy as the previous one. Last spring, viewers learned – alongside Mary Jane – the true nature of the relationship between David (Stephen Bishop) and Lisa (Latarsha Rose). The new knowledge caused the car accident.
While Mary Jane was able to save her job after the collision, she struggles to overcome the other moving pieces in her life, including a “tragedy in the family [that] will throw her world into chaos once more.”
